I`ve never seen anything between.

Just did a quick search on TLC, and they don`t have anything.

8k5w - rough calc - 34A(ish)

Other option; assuming 6.0mm feed, would be butt connectors (yellow)

Bonus - don`t have to be accessible.

You could buy the "Real Thing" direct from Triton?

It has been woven from the finest strands of plastic..

handcrafted by skilled moulders with secret knowledge passed down from generation to generation..

the contacts are the purest gold refined to the most exacting standards..

not matched by any other electrical screw connection.....

Well they must be..

cuz it costs

Have you ever added up the total cost to buy all of the individual componets to make a new shower, (bit like a kit-car), sort of Kit-shower if you order it all from Triton?Now you would have though self assembly would be cheaper??? ?:| ? :| :D :D:D
Hell! It's cheaper now to buy a whole new florescent fixture that to buy a new choke! Emergency lights too, it's cheaper to replace the fixture than to buy new battery packs!

Reduce, reuse, recycle my ****!

So how is the rating of a connector block calculated ???????
(like the avatar mate - whatever it is???) :eek:

It is my understanding that the rating is determined by it`s temperature while passing x current. i.e. as cable carrying capacity is calculated.B)

Mind you, I could be talking a complete load of dogs danglies. :^O :^O
